Cats seem to have a complicated relationship with Christmas. On the one paw, they want to destroy every single thing having to do with Christmas — the tree, the ornaments, wrapping paper, ribbons, and boxes. On the other, cats love to destroy things. Once a year, a cat's home is turned into one big jungle gym of destruction, so that's fun!
But then there's the part where the humans don't want the cats to play in this new awesome land of wonder and possibility. Humans even decorate a huge scratching post with bright, shiny, ridiculously breakable cat toys, and then won't let the cats play with them, even when no one else is using them. That would make anyone hate Christmas. What's the point, the cats are probably wondering.
